Creating Nonsexist Classrooms: A Process Approach.
Porro, Barbara
This paper presents and discusses a method for helping teachers create nonsexist classrooms. The method, a process approach, was developed in a research study which measured the effects of a nonsexist classroom environment on the sex role attitudes of first graders. The method is characterized by two phases: a preactive phase, in which the classroom environment and curriculum are modified to support a nonsexist perspective, and an interactive phase, in which stereotypical attitudes and behaviors among the students are systematically treated. Activities and materials involved in each phase are described, and data from the research study are briefly presented. (MP)
